This is the 6th collection in Martha Lynn Thompson’s best-selling Ring with 6 series. Expanding the 12-bell concept, these pieces use 14-17 bells, all are hymn tune or carol settings, and all can be rung by six ringers without the use of 4-in-hand ringing. A seventh person — perhaps the director — is needed for the simple percussion part. Although the pieces stand alone without percussion, the instruments add much to the nature of the pieces. Suggested assignments are provided for each piece.
Titles: He Is Born; Holy Manna; Jesus' Hands Were Kind Hands; Now the Green Blade Riseth (Sing We Now of Christmas); Patapan; 'Twas In the Moon of Wintertime
